2:05am
>> that's not even nice. >> nice. >> this, as you know, we're on this no drinking challenge. >> "ladies home journal" put us up to it. hoda must have been drunk when she said yes. >> at my book signing, that's what people wanted to talk about, not the book. >> they haven't read the book yet. >> hey, about your book, but why aren't you drinking? how is it? what do you like to drink? >> we're trying to get fit! so far it's not working. even wine futures are down. >> we heard. see what happened? that's sad. >> i think we need to make it up for the wine industry, take our show on location to napa valley or sonoma valley. what do you think? >> my favorite thing is when you announce something on air and we have to do it. >> you were there last night. you have another one tonight, right? >> one at huntington tonight, now jimmy kimmel apparently did not get the memo that we are not drinking wine through the end of the month.
2:06am
but anyway, let's take a listen. >> seems like a man thing, but it's called the vapor-timi. it allows you to inhale alcohol. you pour alcohol on the bottom and you heat it up, inhale the vapor, and the alcohol goes directly into your bloodstream. it's like a reverse breathalyzer. that's quite an idea. dude, what if you could smoke beer? inhaling alcohol is dangerous. you get a lot drunker a lot faster, and if you get too drunk, it can look something like this. [ laughter ] >> terrifying. so be careful. >> that's my old friend jimmy kimmel. i will find you and hurt you. >> we did try that thing. where you snort the -- >> we did that a couple of months ago. it was weird, though. >> i liked it. you don't feel like you're getting the calories, but you're still getting the -- right? >> apparently, you want something else as well.
2:07am
>> you were on something else. it's called "the new normal" on nbc that has nene. you know that one? >> won't invite us on, but will have their way with us. >> let's hear what they have to say. >> families look different now. no matter what their gender, all that matters is being lucky enough to have a partner to count on, an ally to always have your back. they are the strength to your weaknesses. the yin to your yang. the kathie lee to your hoda. >> that one i like. >> how sweet was that? >> you know what, we are actually tod going to be talking about our girlfriends, the new husbands. . yes. wait, by the way, that's a really interesting topic. >> i know. >> a lot of friends and i have had this discussion. guys are funny about things. i remember back in the day when i was married, men are problem solvers. if you come in complaining at work, this is what this girl did
2:08am
to me, i was so upset, what did you say to her? nothing. well, say something to her tomorrow and the problem is solved. yeah, but i'm not done discussing it. so i want to let it breathe, and he wants -- >> you want to live there for a while. >> he wants to fix it. then you stop, okay, this isn't the right place to go. let me call my friend so i can complain about that and i'll get him to change the light bulb. >> then if you're married long enough, you get to the point he doesn't want to fix anything. hire somebody, call somebody. you do it, i'm going to sit here and be me. >> a lot of people do rely on their girlfriends and sometimes the girlfriend is the first call as opposed to the huts. maybe the girlfriend's been going through what you've been going through. >> here's the sad reality, everybody. i say this from almost 27 years, and i love my husband, so let's keep that in mind. once you know somebody really, really well, everything changes. >> what do you mean, all the dirty details?
2:09am
>> when you don't know somebody, you're in a slinky this and they're all -- after awhile you become very, very content with one another. that's a good thing to get to that point, it really is. >> you're right. >> i thought you were sipping wine. that was going to make me crazy. anyway, yeah, you know what i'm saying. >> it is true. >> your girlfriends don't live with you. your best girlfriends, even if they lived with you, would drive you crazy. >> absolutely. you're right, you're right. >> i adore you, but if you left all those doors open at my house and threw your jeans -- oh! i'd be at your throat. >> right now, again, with my cabinets open, it's so weird how i don't notice. i duck under. i don't even notice. i clean -- i don't clean. i move things away, throw things away. i do. you get used to it. you're right, i'd drive you out of your gourd.
2:10am
>> that's why you call your girlfriend, you don't live with her. >> everyone you live with, you know all their secrets and they are not as terrific. >> let's be honest, okay. the big gun control debate caught fire in another way. the nra came out with an ad that's really touched a lot of nerves. again, we're talking about whether or not teachers or security guards or somebody in schools should be armed. a lot of people, this is a controversial ad. take a look. >> the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to fair share to security. protection for his kid and gun-free zones for ours.
2:11am
>> so the debate is that going too far? it's one thing to have your feelings about the second amendment and what that actually means, and it's another thing to drag the president's children into the debate. >> clearly, the president's kids are always a bigger target. >> no matter whether republican or democratic president. >> i still don't understand why there can't be a debate about the way we can still have weapons that are reasonable -- it shouldn't be about no guns or uzis. there's always talk about the slippery slope if you take away the uzi or ak, i know i'm not saying the right terms -- whatever those kind of guns are. >> assault rifles and machine guns. >> that somehow you won't be able to have a weapon to protect yourself in the home. i don't really get that. >> it's a huge debate. i believe in our constitution, i'm a huge constitutionalist, and i real you will believe everybody should have the right
2:12am
to bear arms. but when those laws were written it was one bullet and we could never have foreseen uzi machine guns in the hands of crazy people that want to massacre your children. i'm very much for the strict background checks. i hope that they could actually work. it's going to add to the price. they can't do the background checks now. i'm all for enforcing laws we already have on the books before we start writing a million more laws. however, i think rational people feel like they don't want any crazy person to have uzi machine guns with 30 bullets -- >> i do think if you made the penalty for a crime using the guns, if you tripled the penalty, that would have to have some kind of impact on whether or not even criminals choose to use that type of a weapon. if you really were serious about ed and said i'm going to lay down the law. i don't care. it's a different penalty if you use a gun or this type of crazy gun. >> maybe it's a lot of all of
2:13am
the above we really should be looking at. i'm telling you, if i were a parent at sandy hook who'd lost their child, i would have wanted somebody there to protect them. i would have wanted somebody at that door that could have stopped that killer. >> you would have hoped that person could have. but then you saw a lot of parents who had a news conference who said all they wanted to talk about was getting those guns, working on gun control. >> as you say, has to be a balanced approach. everybody's rights need to be preserved. you got to remember, there's a huge amount of money to be made in ammunition, arms, magazines. huge, huge, huge. basically, at the end of the day, it's all about money. they want to make it a constitutional thing, but there's a way to live within our constitution and protect our values and our rights, but at the same time -- >> i agree, i agree. >> send all your nasty e-mails to her, because i don't read them. >> no. guess who's going to be a grandpa. >> i'm in an e-mail-free zone.
2:14am
. you are. >> and i like it. >> guess who is a grandpa, charlie sheen. going to be, at least. frightening thought. who knew he had a daughter who was 28? did everybody know? i had no idea. >> can you back up? girlfriend's 24, but he has a daughter who's 28 that's expecting a baby. >> it's his girlfriend's daughter who's expecting -- wait a minute. that doesn't make sense. >> it's his daughter. >> i thought he had a daughter from when he was 17 years old. in high school. >> it was written funky. >> his girlfriend's 24 and his daughter's 28. >> his daughter is the one that -- it didn't say it that way. never mind. his expectant mom is ca sand remarks charlie's child, his high school child with paula prof fit. >> you don't picture him as a grandpa. >> i don't think he pictures himself as one either. do you think charlie sheen will ever change? >> i don't know if people ever change.
2:15am
>> i know people who have changed enormously through life, but usually when they've had an epiphany or something like that. >> i don't know. he was on fallon last night and yukking it up about who's going to be the one wearing the bib. he was laughing about it. >> how about somebody wearing the -- instead. >> oh, that. >> indeed. >> it's just a thought. if we could solve our problems with guns, perhaps we could solve our problems otherwise. >> i think you're right. speaking of jimmy fallon, since he was on jimmy fall son. i'm so excited. >> nobody's more important than hoda woman. >> except sara haines. hi, sara. >> i can't believe you're going to be on jimmy fallon. i love that. >> don't you love him? >> he's the best, he's a real guy. but he cracks me up every time he opens his mouth. >> he's like the new regis, in a sense. regis always had a sense of wonder, can you believe i'm here and i get to do this and i'm standing here with george clooney?
2:16am
jimmy makes you feel that. he's that every man. >> he's grounded. >> let's talk about hoda's book. >> we appreciate everyone posting on our facebook wall, so keep chatting with us, because we're going to pick five people at random to send a signed book. >> i'm ready to sign! i got it, girl. >> books, the hard part is not writing them. as hard as that is. the hard part it getting out there that first week and selling them. >> you got it, baby. you got your girl, who needs a man, right? >> are girlfriends the new husbands? perks and pitfalls right after this. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend with a wipe. before the cold & flu season, help prevent with lysol. because when you have 10 times more protection with each hand wash... and kill 99.9% of germs around the house with each spray... those healthy habits start to add up.
2:17am
this season, a good offense is the best defense and lysol has your family covered because that's our mission for health. diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues... with three strains of good bacteria. [ phillips' lady ] live the regular life. phillips'.
2:18am
[ phillips' lady ] live the regular life. i played a round of golf.id in the last five hours? then i read a book while teaching myself how to play guitar; ran ten miles while knitting myself a sweater; jumped out of a plane. finally, i became a ping pong master while recording my debut album. how you ask? with 5-hour energy. i get hours of energy now -- no crash later. wait to see the next five hours. she's had your back through boyfriends, breakups, and all those ridiculous diets you've been on, we're talking about your best girlfriend. >> since women are waiting to get married, if at all, friends are becoming more important than ever, so are girlfriends replacing husbands? editor and chief of "marie claire."
2:19am
is here. and a psychologist and author of "sanity savers, tips for women to live a balanced life." >> and ladies, nice to see you both again in the new year. >> thanks for having us. >> this is an interesting topic, isn't it? >> as we were thinking about, i tried to realize why this might be so. does this have to do with the fact women are waiting later and later? i think the average age is 27 now to get married for a first-time bride. >> there is an unprecedented number of single women between the ages of 25 and 34 in the country now, and almost half believe the institution of marriage is obsolete. >> that worries me about our culture going forward. should it? >> even the ones who are looking forward to getting married, they are going through bigger life decisions with their girlfriends. >> is it that men are problem solvers? because they like to fix. i get it, they don't want to hear you rattle on and on and on about your problems. >> whining! >> you've really hit the nail on the head, hoda. what we don't really reward in
2:20am
our society is an empathetic bow avenue yoerl response. and men get rewarded for that all the time in our society, and they are much more oriented to do that, where women are much more oriented to be empathetic, have much more compassion in the interaction and that's what most women are looking for. >> are we also looking for both? sometimes hoda will have a situation or i'll have a situation and she wants me to talk to her about it and understand it. you look for me somtimes what should i do with this? we come to a solution together. >> you come to a solution. >> you're my husband! >> of course, i am. >> you come to a solution, because you understand you're heard and you understand the person has exactly the feeling that you have of how you might be best at solving this problem. >> you get it. >> that makes you want to go forward with that person. >> is it a danger for your relationship? if you're married and you call
2:21am
your girlfriends when you have news and it sort of leaves him out of the loop. isn't it detrimental? >> i think you go to your girlfriends for some things or you go to your husband or life partner for something else. the thing about marriage, it's a legal contract. he's legally bound to be there in the morning. >> they leave a lot of times. they pack it up. >> your girlfriends, you may have a spat and it could take a week or month or sometimes a year to make up. >> is it really about ultimately listening? somebody -- because we are such a nation of yap yap yap. but we don't really listen to one another. >> it is about listening and empathetic listening. it's also about reduction of stress. i think it's important to recognize when we are with our girlfriends, our stress usually reduces. there's unbelievable research that shows that women not only want to tend and befriend, which means be together in times of stress and take care of the young ones if they're around, but also that we feel better and
2:22am
we want to be nurtured and nurturing. so our blood pressure goes down, our cholesterol goes down, our health improves, and if we don't have our girlfriends and don't have those connections, we really are more at risk health-wise. i think the other issue, though, is -- and i appreciate what anne said, we tell men some things, our girlfriends other things. when you're telling something to your girlfriends that might be embarrassing or not kind to your husband, i think you have to really appreciate there's someone else you're bound to you have to be respectful of. >> guys get together for the same reason? do they talk to their guy friends? >> no, they head butt and watch games. >> thank you, ladies. >> thank you so much. all right, you sent them in. >> we picked the best. >> all those photos that made you say what the what coming up right after this.

2:33am
a lot of it, i remember them being in the nicu, my husband and i would get a pizza and i would eat as much as him, and finish the entire pie. a lot of it was stress eating, emotional eating, looking to food when things got crazy. it's a habit that's hard to break. >> we all know about that. >> how cute is she? >> brave heidi is going to stand on the scale now. everybody's going to be in the same situation. >> i've lost my mind. >> you can do it, girl. >> welcome to our world. heidi weighs -- 182. >> 183.4. we'll go with the thing on the back. >> it's the shoes. >> it's the shoes, it's the shoes. >> can i tell you something? >> you look good. i'm sorry, you look really good. >> i do work out. >> i can tell. >> so the next lady we have is kathy gilbert.

2:44am
